‘Pokemon Go’: Thundurus Raid counters (Season of Legends)


Thundurus is a pokemon that needs to complete the Special Research Task. Here’s a guide for players who are looking forward to raiding it.

Thundurus is one of the pokemon that all players need for the special event in Pokemon Go. This is a proper guide for all players who are looking forward to raiding and capturing this pokemon.

Season of Legends is the newest addition to the game and is currently one of the main attractions of the series. There is a heavy focus from players for the three genie type pokemon, which players can only find in the Unova region.

In the original game, which was released way before Pokemon Go, Pokemon Black and White let all the players run into various types of accidents while they were inspecting the region. Wandering pokemons have been a complete staple in the series for generations, but each of these various pokemons comes along with its own set of strengths and weaknesses.

What do players have to do in this season?

In the newest season of Pokemon Go, players will have to capture all three types of genie pokemons. In order to do this, players have to capture them by raiding them or defeating them in a battle against the opponent.

Developers have already marked off that Legendary Pokemons takes a lot of Stardusts to trade. Hence, all the players should raid these pokemons into some sort of battle or finding them wandering off in the wild by intensive searching.

What are the best raid counters for Thundurus?

If players need to raid Thundurus in Pokemon Go, here are some of the best possible counter-actions they can do.

  • Rampardos: SmackDown and Rock Slide
  • Rhyperior: Smackdown and Rock Wrecker
  • Mega Abomasnow: Powder Snow and Weather Ball
  • Galarian Darmanitan: Ice Fang and Avalanche
  • Mamoswine: Powder Snow and Avalanche
  • Terrakion: SmackDown and Rock Slide

A lot of players might not have these pokemons on their list. You can bring any pokemon which has Ice or Rock-type attack. Since this is a five-star raid, you need to wait in a lobby of 5 players and patiently wait for your chance to take and capture Thundurus.

Also, if players happen to find Thundurus wandering in the wild, then to capture it, you can feed it Golden Razz Berry. Please wait for it to finish the attack animation while battling it.
